From the Paper:

"Although both the Jehovah's and Christians share the commonality of believing God and his teachings through the bible, there are many fundamental doctrinal differences between the two religions. These doctrinal differences may be what separates their popularity among the vast majority of religious believers within the world. Christianity's much more passive belief attracts a very diverse audience because it does not require the life changing habits that the Jehovah's demand within their worship. Despite their difference however, both Christians and Jehovah's believe in spreading the Word of God to others through the teachings of the bible. Their commitment to sharing the Word of God is considered by all to be an invaluable service to the spiritual community. Ultimately both of these religions use the word of God to bring people closer and to develop a greater understanding of religion, therefore they serve similar purposes in helping to spread the word of God. While their teachings have seen a severe backlash from many different governments and societies because of their neutrality during political conflicts, Jehovah's are responsible for bringing religious tolerance to many different countries around the world. Many of Jehovah's Witnesses humble and conservative demeanors attract naysayer and negative attention on their unwillingness to cohesively transition into communities and societies; however they are admired for the spirituality and their devotion to their religion. In today's world religious tolerance has allowed Jehovah's to coexist within almost all countries in the world."
